Witness: Man was killed over AIDS exposure

In Edwardsville, Ill., a man is on trial for a 2004 murder where he allegedly set another man on fire. Most of the previous testimony has suggested the defendant, Joey Ragusa, was upset over a drug deal, but a jailhouse informant says it was because a third man had put a $5,000 bounty on Jimmy Morrison's head for exposing him to the HIV virus. The general rule of thumb is to take jailhouse testimony with an entire box of salt, but this guy has already served his time and is getting nothing from the prosecution.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, cripjak!
